Hairstyle How-To: Tucked Draped French Braid

My hair wasn't up to having a length photo taken today, but I took a photo of the hairstyle of the day instead. 

This hairstyle is a Tucked Draped French Braid. It's a very simple style, if you know how to French braid.

To create a Draped French Braid, you don't French braid the hair at the scalp. Instead, you hold the strands out from the head at a 90 degree angle and braid there. As you add each new strand, you add it at the same 90 degree angle, parallel to the floor.

After finishing the braid, secure with a hair friendly elastic. Roll the tail up, and pin it to the nape, and that's it!

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. Happy birthday Lulu, and I hope that your celebration this evening is a lovely one.

'Til tomorrow, my friends. Much love to all.


  1. Great French Braid - very loose but stylish!

  2. El Bilson, thank you. Of course the style is meant to be loose.

    Thank you, SchnauzerMom. That style is a particular favourite of mine.


I love hearing from you.
